Adopt-a-Box, Supporting the Miami-Dade Farming Community and Families in Need

In an effort to assist Florida’s agricultural communities to financially survive one of their most challenging times in history, and at the same time feed South Florida Families who are in need, a consortium of various groups has come together to support a program titled Adopt-a-Box. Boxes will be filled with a variety of local Redland-Raised and Fresh from Florida fruits and vegetables and distributed free to the public.
